EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The only book to deal comprehensively with insect feeding was published by C. T. Brues in 1946. His Insect Dietary was an account of insect feeding habits. Since that time there has been a revolution in biology, and almost all aspects of our understanding of insect feeding have expanded to an extent and into areas that would have been unthinkable in Brues' day. Yet, our book does not replace Insect Dietary but, instead, complements it, because our aim is to bring together information on the mechanisms by which food quality and quantity are regulated. We deliberately focus attention on the feeding process; to include food-finding would have required a much larger book and would have moved the focus away from more proximate mechanisms. This book is dedicated to the late Vincent G. Dethier. As a pioneer in studying the physiological basis of animal behavior, he focused on regulation of feeding in flies and caterpillars. His work on the blowfly, together with that by his many students and co-workers, still provides the most completely described mechanism of insect feeding. The citation of his work in almost every chapter in this book illustrates the importance of his findings and ideas to our current understanding of regulation of insect feeding. The authors in this book provide many innovative and stimulating ideas typifying Dethier's approach to the study of feeding be havior.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Professor Paul Mandible, on leave in France from teaching English on a U.S. Navy ship, experiences a personal renaissance within moments of meeting the rich and beautiful Collette Doublet at a sidewalk café in Nice. But first, Paul must deal with Bunny, his compulsion-riddled, Bible belt, neurotic wife of twenty-seven years, and his mundane teaching job at Grand View College in Des Moines, Iowa. Paul enlists Collette's help to divorce Bunny in Mexico. But when Bunny is brutally murdered, Paul is arrested by the Mexican authorities, although he didn't kill her. Upon his release, Paul marries Collette and they reside in her villa in Nice, France. Life is anything but dull for Paul who has succeeded in escaping his weary life in Iowa. First, Paul learns that his father, Harry, will inherit an unexpected fortune from his long-lost genetic father, Eduardo, who died in his native Spain. Harry wants nothing to do with the money, so Paul travels to Spain to collect and finds himself in jeopardy. Then while vacationing in Africa, Paul discovers some startling information about his relatives, and he must make some difficult decisions to set the record straight.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Plant-animal interactions have become a focus of ecological research, with the processes of herbivory being of special interest. This volume examines the interactions of leaf-cutting ants with the rainforest vegetation on Barro Colorado Islands in Central America. It is the synthesis of field research on multiple scales extending over a period of several years. This work can serve as a model study summarizing and extending knowledge about herbivorous insect-plant relationships, and the resulting consequences on structural and functional features of tropical ecosystems. The text is an invaluable reference for researchers and land managers working in the fields of plant-animal interactions, herbivory, community ecology and biodiversity.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Most archaeologists and bioarchaeologists receive little or no training in the recognition of skeletal remains of fetuses, infants, and children. Yet many research sites may contain such materials. Without a framework for identifying the bones or the excavation techniques suited to their recovery, archaeologists may often overlook subadult skeletal remains or even confuse them with animal bones. The Osteology of Infants and Children fills the need for a field and lab manual on this important topic and provides a supplemental textbook for human osteology courses. Focusing on juvenile skeletons, their recovery and identification, and siding in both field and lab settings, the volume provides basic descriptions and careful illustrations of each skeletal element at varying stages of development, along with sections on differentiation from other bones and siding tips. The book offers detailed treatment of the skull and teeth, including the cranial vault and facial bones, and examines the infracranial skeleton: vertebrae, pelvis, chest, shoulders, arms, hands, legs, and feet. A quick reference guide explains age estimation and identification templates. The illustrations are enhanced by photographs from two recent archaeology projects in Egypt, at Abydos and Dakhleh Oasis. The extensive collection of fetal and child remains from these sites provides new reference material unavailable in previous publications, making this manual an unparalleled resource in the field of physical anthropology.
